As a chemist, we are often frustrated by seeing red underlines while writing chemistry texts in word processor, text editor, etc. A very good example seen in thesis writing, countless red underlines can be seen.
Recently, a small group made chemistry dictionary, which contains thousands of chemistry terms and it can be easily integrated to word processors, like Microsoft word, openoffice, iwork, etc.
I have included few more chem terms which is not included in the above link, you can downloaded my list from here.
Installation: word processors (Windows/Mac/Linux)
Please read the file “install.txt” in the downloaded file
Mac users: you can integrate to the OS, download the file from here
copy the file “en” and paste it in ~/library/spelling
In case that you already have the file “en” in the directory (~/library/spelling), then open the en file (the one which you downloaded) with textedit, copy and paste the contents into the en file which is already there in you directory (~/library/spelling).
Note: again I made my own chem term file for mac (combined the original file and my additional chem terms), however my mac couldn’t read it properly and hangs often, so I removed the file from ~/library/spelling.
Please read the original post, if you have any problem in configuration.
